Play Alloa: Clacks Families is our monthly parent/carer support group held on the last Friday morning of each month. These sessions are an opportunity for the parents and carers of children or adults with disabilities or additional support needs (ASN) to get together and socialise in an informal environment, whilst also receiving useful information from a range of guest speakers.
In the last year, we have had the pleasure of welcoming various guest speakers to talk about issues such as: relaxation therapy, fuel poverty, legal advice, self-directed support, mediation and advocacy.
You do not have to be a Play Alloa service user to come to these sessions, and childcare can also be provided if you call ahead in advance. If you have any questions about these sessions, or have any suggestions for future sessions, please do not hesitate to contact Lorna, our Development Officer, on (01259) 721511 or [email protected]
